Trinity boys move on to second round

BROOKHAVEN — Tanner Cage and Tommy McCoy scored 16 points each to lead Trinity Episcopal Day School to a win in the first round of the MAIS South State playoffs Monday evening.

Trinity jumped out to an eight-point halftime lead over Lamar School before exploding for 24 points in the third quarter to put the game away and win 67-40.

Dre McCoy scored 12 points for the Saints, who allowed just 20 points in the second half to Lamar.

Trinity improved to 20-6 overall on the season.

Wyatt Boothe scored nine points for Trinity, Brandon Brooks had six and Garrett Vinson scored four.

Lance Strickland led Lamar with 13 points, and Jonathan Young scored 10.

The Saints will face Central Private at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday.

Oak Forest girls 49, Trinity 34

Marty Lewis scored 14 points, and Tali Beard added 11 for the Trinity Episcopal girls’ basketball team Monday night in its South State playoff game against Oak Forest.

Unfortunately for the Saints, the performances of Beard and Lewis were not enough to overcome Oak Forest, and Trinity lost its final game of the season 49-34.

The Lady Saints finished 0-24 on the year, but the performances of Lewis and Beard, who spent most of the season playing for the junior varsity, were bright spots Monday.

Oak Forest’s Payton Simmons led all scorers with 17 points.
